(Trump.news) A vote for Donald Trump for president will likely mean a lot of things: A rejection of Hillary Clinton, likely for the last time (politically, at least); a belief that Trump definitely will revitalize an economy that President Obama will leave on life support; confidence that he’ll really begin putting America first, among other things. But a vote for Trump – and an eventual Trump victory – may also mean that, for the first time, we’ll have a president who takes seriously the danger aggressive vaccine schedules pose to our children.
As many already know, during the Republican primaries Trump was the first and only candidate to bring up the reported link between MMR vaccines and increased rates of autism.
As NaturalNews reported in October 2015, Trump – a full year earlier – tweeted that “tiny children are not horses” and that they should be given “no more massive injections,” that vaccines should be “one at a time, over time.”
“I am being proven right about massive vaccinations – the doctors lied. Save our children & their future,” he said in another tweet.
“I’m not against vaccinations for your children, I’m against them in 1 massive dose. Spread them out over a period of time & autism will drop!” he said in another, followed by, “So many people who have children with autism have thanked me – amazing response. They know far better than fudged up reports!”
By contrast, Trump’s likely Democratic challenger, Hillary Clinton, has voiced only tepid opposition to Big Pharma, which proved to be completely meaningless after news broke that she had accepted more campaign contributions from pharmaceutical companies than any of the other Democratic or Republican candidates (in the race at the time).
Trump, of course, came under attack from the mainstream media and mainstream medicine for his stance, especially during a debate sponsored by CNN. Debate moderators tried a “gotcha” question with him, but he answered it brilliantly – and correctly:
Autism has become an epidemic… Because you take a baby in, and I’ve seen it, and I’ve seen it, and I had my children taken care of, over a long period of time, over a two or three year period of time, same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump – I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day, two-years-old, two-and-a-half-years-old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic. …I’m in favor of vaccines [but] do them over a longer period of time, same amount, but just in little sections. I think you’re going to have – I think you’re going to see a big impact on autism.
Who agreed with him? Only both of the physicians who were on stage with him that night, retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson and Sen. Rand Paul, an ophthalmologist.
“We are probably giving way too many in too short a period of time…” Carson said when moderators threw the question to him.
“I’m all for vaccines, but I’m also for freedom. I’m concerned about how they’re bunched up… I ought to have the right to spread out the vaccines a little bit,” Paul noted.
As for Trump’s initial vaccine-autism tweets, as we noted he made them just hours after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report nothing that autism rates spiked 30 percent among American children in 2012 and 2013:
The report revealed that one in 68 U.S. children had autism in 2014; whereas in 2012, only one in 88 U.S. children had autism. The report claims it was not designed to determine the cause behind the recent spike in autism rates.
As early as 2012, Trump appeared on TV to rail against what he called “monster vaccines” linked to autism.
“I’ve gotten to be pretty familiar with the subject. You know, I have a theory, and it’s a theory that some people believe in, and that’s the vaccinations. We never had anything like this. This is now an epidemic. It’s way, way up over the past 10 years. It’s way up over the past two years,” he told Fox News, as we reported.
When told his views were outside the mainstream, Trump said: “… I couldn’t care less,” adding, “I’ve seen people where they have a perfectly healthy child, and they go for the vaccinations and a month later the child is no longer healthy.”
